More birds! Including my favorite, the Field Sparrow

I recently ventured out to a prairie region of McDowell Nature Preserve, hoping to find a few spring-enamored feathered characters.  Here is what I found:

About birdsandbenjamin

I am a resident of the North Carolina foothills and visitor to the mountains who finds great joy in observing and living with one of man's best friends, birds! I have limited photographic equipment, only a Nikon L810 and a pair of binoculars (for long-distance images). Nonetheless, I hope you see the heart behind the images and enjoy the beauty of birds on this blog.

    Oh, I am so glad to see you back posting, Benjamin! And glad to see all these lovely shots of the birds you see in Charlotte. You’ve got some fine captures here—especially the brown-headed nuthatch and the yellow-rumped Warbler. I hope to go on that Prairie walk with you someday, but until then, I’ll take pleasure in your photos. Thank you! Hope you’ll post again soon.
